For the discworld 1st collectors...

Postby jwsalmon » Thu Apr 23, 2009 8:52 am

Hiya guys,

From reading the forums I take it there are a lot of collectors among us, and therefore I come to you with a proposal. How about posting pictures of our collections on the forum (through photobucket or similar) and perhaps there can be come sort of weekly award for the best/biggest/rarest/most interesting.

What d'ya reckon?

True Firsts

Postby primary_function » Mon May 25, 2009 8:48 am

Hi All
I have noticed there are some Uncorrected proofs on ebay are these considered the true first editions. And does anybody have a price guide for them before I put a bid in.

Love the site by the way.

Uncorrected proofs are considered 'something else' I think. They aren't true first editions because they weren't sold. I don't know a lot more than that regarding price - we have a couple of members here that are much more knowledgeable though. Hopefully they can put you right. :wink:

You would probably pay well into 3 figures for it depending on what one it was.

Thanks for reply they are the early discworld books hopefully no where near 4 figures they would be nice alongside the Firsts I thought.

Hi primary function.

I collect the UK proofs and have 22 so far.

I reckon if you pay less than 50 pounds for one you've got a bargain. Most are probably between 50 - 150. The rarer ones can go for up to 500. I've seen an Equal Rites proof for $2,500

May I just burst into tears when I order a used book and open the package to find out that it is a First Edition, but a withdrawn Library book? :cry: :cry: Whaaaaaaaaaa! :lol: Hey, what do I expect for less than a buck US, eh? :lol:
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

If it is in resonable condition apart from the stamp it's still a 1st and still collectable, by the way was it a discworld one. :?:

True, it is a Discworld book and in pretty good shape with only the small pocket for the card and the withdrawn stamp on that page.

(Edit: It is Night Watch)
